Spin doctor: X-ray absorption near the iron K edge is used to investigate the characteristics of temperature-induced low-spin-to-high-spin change (SC) in metallo-supramolecular polyelectrolyte amphiphile complexes (PAC) containing FeN6 octahedra attached to two or six amphiphilic molecules (see picture). A uniaxial deformation of the FeN6 octahedron in PAC that accompanies the structural phase transition previously predicted as being responsible of the thermally induced change from the LS to the HS state is observed.
